  • "Really enjoyed our stay at 'Islay', Ferry Farm."

    Lovely spacious and comfortable apartment. Owners pleasant and on hand to help with anything. A great base for jumping on the ferry to Gigha and exploring the amazing Kintyre peninsula. Would be very happy to go back..

The property

Isle Of Gigha 3.7 miles.

Enjoying the coast in Tayinloan, Kintyre, Argyll and the Isles is this lovely, studio-style apartment of Islay.

A fantastic setting for a romantic getaway to this part of Scotland, Islay not only enjoys an idyllic position by the sea, but is a stone's throw away from a ferry port.

Handy parking greets you on arrival, along with the sound of the tide coming in at the nearby, private beach.

Continue to the apartment to find everything you need for a self-catering break at your fingertips, thanks to the studio-style layout!

Head over to the kitchenette and fix up a tasty meal with the choice of appliances provided, before bringing it over to the dining table for two.

If you don't feel like cooking, head to the on-site café instead, where home-cooked meals can be savoured.

Make your way back to the apartment and finish off the day with a bit of unwinding on the plush seating in the sitting area, where a TV will keep you entertained!

When night falls, freshen up in well-presented bathroom, before snuggling up in the double for a well-earned rest.

In the morning, enjoy a steaming cup of coffee whilst lounging on one of the chairs in the front garden before wandering out to explore what this enchanting area of Scotland has to offer.

Head to Tarbert for a day of touring fantastic galleries, putting at the local golf club and exploring the remains of the Royal Castle of Tarbert; the village is also within reach of a gorgeous harbour and quaint beaches, be sure to check them out!

For another memorable day out, pay Campbeltown a visit, where you can learn about the town's history at the Campbeltown Heritage Centre, explore the town's whiskey heritage at the Springbank Distillery, before enjoying a movie at the art deco cinema of Campbeltown Picture House.

Board a ferry and cross the waters to the Isle of Gigha, a place bursting with outdoor havens, including the Achamore Gardens and Mill Loch, as well as the wonderful Boathouse restaurant, where you can enjoy a bit of sea view dining.

Why not head towards the south of the peninsula to find Southend, a lovely settlement boasting gorgeous, sandy beaches, as well as access to hikes along the Mull of Kintyre?

If you're seeking a couples getaway to remember, look no further than Islay!

Note: This property can be booked with Refs. 1098562 and 1097221, together sleeping up to six guests.

About the location


Campbeltown 18.8 miles; Tarbert 18.6 miles; Lochgilphead 31.8 miles.

A stone’s throw away from the ferry to the Isle of Gigha, which is a scenic sail away, a beautiful tranquil place which is community-owned and has its own temperate microclimate thanks to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Tayinloan is midway down the West coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, and you are well placed to discover all that this famous Peninsula has to offer, for instance, Campbeltown, which is famous for its whiskey, and the oldest operating Art Deco Cinema in the UK, and Machrihanish, where the US and RAF were based, with the longest runway in Europe, where you can catch a flight to Glasgow. Alternatively, walk to Westport along one of the longest sandy beaches on Kintyre with spectacular sand dunes and untamed surf from the Atlantic Ocean which makes it a Mecca for surfers from all over the world. Further round, there is The Mull of Kintyre with its lighthouse, Southend, a fantastic beach, along with St Columba’s Footprint, and caves. Head up the East road through Peninver, and on to Carradale, a sleepy picturesque fishing village. Why not head to Clonaig, where you could take a day out over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Island of Arran (The Sleeping Giant), also known as Scotland in miniature, on account of its geology? Go on further to find Skipness with its Castle, and Seafood Cabin and Smokehouse in its grounds - a great day out for kids and adults alike! To complete your round trip of the peninsula head on to Tarbert, where the fishing fleet keeps the local hotels, restaurants, and A&D Johnsons fishmongers. As you can see there is all of the above and so much more to see and do around the coast, not forgetting to mention the hiking trails, mountain biking, wildlife watching, fishing, and ample opportunities to unwind. Come to Kintyre, there’s something for Everyone.
